For the 456 Pininfarina worked its magic once more to create a subtly beautiful curvaceous body contrasting with the hard edges of its predecessor. Although bereft of extraneous aerodynamic devices, the 456 remained stable up to its maximum of around 190mph, a figure that made it the world’s fastest production four-seater passenger car. Acclaimed on its debut, the 456Fs styling has not dated and is a tribute to Pininfarina’s farsightedness in creating one of most successful designs of modern times. An air-conditioned interior, sumptuous Connolly leather trim, perfectly weighted power steering and Porsche-rivalling build quality all combined to make the 456GT a worthy competitor for Bentley, Aston Martin and Mercedes-Benz. An automatic transmission version, known as the 456GT A, became available for 1997 and then two years later the model was given its one-and-only makeover, re-emerging as the subtly restyled and improved 456 M GT.
This 2002 Modificato model was registered new in Germany by its first owner and there after lived its life in sunny Monaco hence its amazing condition and wonderful low miles. The car finished in arguably the best colour combination of Tour De France Blue over tan . Notably it comes with a recent full set of Pirelli P Zeros and has just had a full major service including brakes and belts.
With full Ferrari History from new, this must be one of the best low mileage examples on the market worldwide today.
